    So I tried to look for the numbers and this is latest that I found. I'm quite surprised by WJSN. KARA had the highest Korean album sales so far in GAON with STEP (106k) but the latest that I could find for Hanteo is only around 51.7k.

    1. WJSN "For The Summer" (2019) - 71.5k
    2. Mamamoo "reality in BLACK" (2019) - 70.5k
    3. Apink "Pink Memory" (2015) - 62.1k
    4. GFriend "Fever Season" (2019) - 61.1k
    5. GFriend "Time For Us" (2019) - 61k

    That was sales after two months on Gaon. OP is talking about first week hanteo sales. Which are still impressive for a non Big3.

    On Gaon sales it is.

    Lol, yes it's specific but all these groups came from far smaller company and had no reality show/television hype debuting.

    That's right, all those groups had to fight hard, with no senior support, no built in fanbase from a TV Show, no big money from a large company.

    Hell, some of them even built their agencies from the ground up.

    So ya, hella impressive. from 500 copies in the first week of debut to over 50k... damm right that impresses me more than 100k sales on a debut album from a large company.

    These groups had to overcome so much more.

    Everyone started from somewhere after all. Also new generation groups have an unfair advantage as well. More Hanteo stores have opened since 2014. And KPop physical sales for less popular girl groups has risen. So the girls in your list have an advantage as well just like the big 3/produce ones. Just found that interesting. Not to mention DSP was a Big 2 company as well.

    Well one, your biases company on the whole "nugu" scale is at the top of that scale. Thats for one.

    For two TWICE's first day sales for their first album was 708 for anyone wondering. TWICE never debuted with 100K ever? Their debut on Gaon is 17,000. That is just for TWICE. BP and ITZY I can understand and same for produce groups besides I.O.I. That makes sense.

    Three these same groups you are trying to dismiss are the same groups that got the genre so popular and even allowed your faves to thrive? These same groups are the groups that inspired most of y'all faves? Like without these groups yours wouldn't have even existed. GFriend dead ass is outselling S.E.S, F(x), Miss A, Wonder Girls in Japan without even breaking a sweat. All of them being Big 3 GG? You know why GFriend can do that? Cause BoA, TVXQ, BIGBANG, 2PM, SNSD, and TWICE all Big 3 acts opened the gateway to even allow that to be a possibility. The same acts that you all try to act like their success was handed to them?

    Without the help of BB, SNSD, WG, and 2NE1 K-Pop groups wouldn't have been a revived concept after its decline pre 2007. I am just wondering exactly what in the hell is this narrative y'all want to spin so bad? I mean I get it, people love an underdog story but sis? Trying to act like that popular acts weren't impressive because of their company when without these acts your faves wouldn't be existing or anywhere near close as successful as they are today? I don't even stan Big 3 companies don't get me wrong. But this just feels dusty.

    You can't drag the inventor and influencer while at the same time profiting off of their actions? It makes no sense. You don't have to worship these groups or respect them. I don't like all of them either. But to dismiss them and act like you are somehow superior. It is just as goofy as the Big 3 stans who act like being popular is all that matters. Both sides are absolutely clowns.

    Girl why are you spinning this into something that’s so not related anymore lol. Op clearly just meant groups that didn’t have an existing fandom before they debuted, and you’d be lying if you say produce/ the current big 3 groups didn’t already have fans/ people that know and anticipate them before their debut. It’s really just that simple, so the fact that kpop groups 20 years ago “paved the way” to popularise kpop has like nothing to do with this lol

    They have a very small Gaon/Hanteo ratio. It's not often but it happen sometimes.

    Girl I stopped reading right there. That approach will just end up with only one part of your sentence read. That just signs to me that you didn't read what I said and tried it. Good luck sis.

    Anyways, I just wanted to come here and discuss about the topic since I find it interesting when list like this are made. If it was titled maybe

    Top 5 Non-Big 3/Produce 3rd Generation Girl Group Hanteo Album Sales. Then that'd be more fair to the groups who don't have the advantages that the ones on the list do?

    I can't get past half of your sentence cause you really think that I care about anything you have to say after you just showed me thats you like trying it?

    Edit: Nvm you joined in October. No wonder you think that you are snapping with me.
